Teamwork & Leadership Training | Strong Teams, Shared Leadership: Strengthen team culture, improve communication and energize staff
An incredible power is released when we work effectively together. When teams function optimally, they can be excellent tools to ensure resiliency, manage risk, and maximize achievement.

Strong team culture is essential to sustain success. How can we foster authentic and lasting team culture? Reunite your team under a higher goal. Embolden the professionals on your teams to lead from within. Adam combines inspiring stories with an interactive presentation to share the concept of Shared Leadership with teams across sectors.

Leadership Training | Leadership Beyond the Box – Risk: An Opportunity with A Reputation
What is your attitude to risk? Are you a natural risk taker who gets energized by the danger or will you do anything to avoid risk or try to reduce it as much as possible? Understanding one’s own risk type and that of others significantly helps professionals make better decisions for themselves and understand how others make decisions. It helps with alignment but mostly it helps us make better decisions and attempt things we might not otherwise attempt in our pursuit of success. In this workshop participants will explore their individualized risk type, profile and attitude toward a variety of different types of risk. They will leave with an understanding that risk is all about knowing where our own blind spots and biases are with respect to risk.
